With Tableau’s all-new Hyper API, developers can now use full CRUD (Create Rest Update Delete database) support at Hyper-speed and unleash the power of SQL to interact with .hyper files and write applications to access data sources for which Tableau does not provide a connector, automate ETL processes (e.g. rolling window updates) and retrieve data from .hyper files. In this session, we will introduce the basic concepts of the Hyper API, guide you through the installation of the Hyper API, and showcase how to write applications to interact with hyper files. This training will use Python, so basic Python knowledge is required.
After this training, you will be able to install the Hyper API and use it for your scenarios. In particular, you will be able to create and populate .hyper files, be able to connect to existing .hyper files and implement a rolling window refresh, and be able to query data from .hyper files.
